When Port City Brewing Company first opened in Alexandria Virgina I paid them a visit and profiled them in this post. Now, nine months later, the brewery is continuing to grow at an astounding rate. This week Port City released their Tidings Ale, a strong Belgian blonde ale, which is made with local Maryland wildflower honey and Virginia wheat, and is spiced with coriander, cardamom, fresh ginger and grains of paradise.
While sampling this latest release I sat down with Bill Butcher, the owner of Port City, and asked him a few questions about his brewery, the craft beer business, and some general craft beer topics. The audio I recorded was clean enough that we are releasing it as a podcast. Crack open a fresh beer, sit back, and enjoy.
